Gennaro Gattuso has nothing but praise for Abou-Treika
In an interview with “Al Bayan” newspaper, former Italy & AC Milan international praised Abou-Treika.
When asked who he thought was the best Arab player, he replied: “Abou-Treika of Egypt. He is an excellent player and very skilful.”
This should come as encouragement to Abou-Treika who was nominated for the 2013 African player of the year award.
It is worth mentioning that the duo came face to face once before at the Confederations Cup in 2009 where the Egyptian came victorious as he helped his side beat Italy 1-0.
